|1953 Commercial for Lucky Strike cigarettes (ad 7)|
A 1953 commercial for Lucky Strike cigarettes featuring Dorothy Collins. Just HOW MANY commercials did Lucky Strike make, anyway? With a half-hour prime-time series having 2 or 3 commercials breaks per an episode during the 1950s and Lucky only sponsoring 2 or 3 series at a time, I'm amazed at how many Lucky Strike commercials there are. It's like they can breed or something.

|The Emperor Presents Dorothy Collins - Matthew Paul Argall|
Just some video I (Argall) edited together, with clips of Dorothy Collins singing songs on the "Your Hit Parade" series, as well as a few of her Lucky Strike commercials. Yes, I realise this video has a silly title...but it's a catchy title, much like some of the songs she sings. (note: while the "Your Hit Parade" TV series is public domain, the compositions she performs are still copyrighted. So maybe not a wise idea to upload it to YouTube)

|Your Hit Parade - May 2, 1951 (Music/Variety)|
An episode of "Your Hit Parade", a music-themed TV series in which the cast performed the hit songs of the week and a couple of "extras". This episode is a bit of a "off-episode", not up to usual standards. Songs include: "Mockin Bird Hill", "Sparrow in the Treetops", "Be My Love", "How High the Moon", "On Top of Old Smoky" (a dreadful rendition), "Would I Love You" and "If". Some severe sound issues during the closing credits and Lucky Strike jingle.
